University COVID data published daily as downward trend continues

The University is now publishing data on active cases of COVID-19 on a daily basis at

The number of active cases of COVID-19 continues on a downward trend, reducing by 59 per cent over the past 10 days, to leave 622 active cases at the University.

While this may show that our COVID security measures are working, there is no room for complacency and will continue to work with our partners in public health across the city.

We have ensured that students keep to their designated households and provided incentives to help them socialise at home or on campus, on-campus testing stations and an asymptomatic testing regime to identify cases earlier and faster than the national scheme.

We will continue to ensure that all our activities to support students including in-person teaching is only conducted in a COVID-secure environment, following all government and public health guidelines.

We would like to thank our staff who are making tremendous efforts to teach, research and support our students on- and off-campus, as well as our 35,000 students, the overwhelming majority of whom are acting responsibly and following the rules.
